Cheryl Telfer is a holistic nutritionist, wellness advocate and is training to be a certified health coach.
At the beginning of 2020, Cheryl left a career in the broadcast media and advertising industry to focus on sharing her knowledge and passion for holistic health and nutrition with the world. She has since hosted nutrition talks and corporate workshops to share some invaluable insights into how the holistic approach to nutrition can benefit us all. She also creates wellness content and shares nutritious recipes on social media, as well as writing her newsletter Wellnotes.
Having experienced issues with her health due to a chronic genetic condition called Sickle Cell Anaemia, Cheryl decided to become more responsible for her health and wellbeing on a day-to-day basis. Public healthcare helped her survive, but it's self-care that has helped her thrive!
She is a proponent for the idea that food is medicine and tunes into traditional practices like Ayurveda, Chinese medicine (TCM) and herbalism. She also believes there is a place for western medicine in the equation. The holistic approach is about tuning into our bodies and finding how best to care for it. That might mean taking the necessary medication, as well as eating a nourishing diet right for your personal needs.
